The Quiet Adventurers in Canada


The first Channel Islanders to set foot in the New World were probably fishermen who, searching for cod, found Canada. They established fisheries along all the Atlantic Canadian coast. The success of the fisheries required the Channel Islanders to settle there permanently, thus beginning many Canadian coastal settlements. Ms. Turk devotes a chapter to the contributions of Channel Islanders to the development of the Canadian Maritimes: Newfoundland, Labrador, Nova Scotia and Cape Breton, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, and Ontario. This reprint includes many corrections and additions sent to the author after the first publication in 1979.
